It's just such leisurely luxury to be able to read and flip the newspapers without having to watch the time. Don't we remember a time in school when we did nothing but read all day and all night? We stayed up nights to finish all those series of fantasy journeys and magical quests, and chased the thrillers to the end in one sitting because we were too impatient to put it down for a second reading. Sleep was an annoyance then.
Ironically, on vacation and work trips, I don't just squeeze in all the activities I want to do. I also found lots of pockets of leisure time to read. Books, magazines, online sites, everything. I read in the room, outside at the cabana, in the sitting room, by the pool, at the beach, everywhere. The man is the same. He devours even more books than I do. He reads in the car- something which I can't do because it induces nausea.
Could have brought the Kindle along but didn't bother. Didn't bring the iPad. I already have the work laptop tagging along. Otherwise it's just a gadget-overdose. Instead, I brought hard copies. Physically flipping a book is just, nicer, for some unknown reason. Reading this way is easier on the eye. I like seeing words in print on paper. It's so....quaint, I suppose.
